Coriolis licenses have a start and expiration date for the allowed operation types to be performed.
The licenses will specify the maximum number of VMs which can be Migrated using Coriolis Migrations and also specify the maximum number of VMs which can have Disaster Recovery setup using Coriolis Replicas and Coriolis Replica Deployments.
The number of operations that can be performed using a license is per VM, so one 5-VM-Migration counts the same as five 1-VM-Migrations.
A valid Coriolis license is required in order to have Migrations and Replicas executed by a Coriolis installation.
- Go to the About screen
Coriolis licenses are issued based on the unique ID of the Coriolis installation.
To get your Coriolis installation ID, in the main Dashboard screen, navigate to the top right corner, click the user silhouette, and click “About Coriolis”.
- Copy the appliance ID
The About pop-up will show you some details regarding your license (if there is one already). On the bottom row, there will be your Appliance ID which needs to be copied and sent in order to have a license generated for your installation.
After you receive a new Coriolis license file, it will have to be added to the Coriolis installation.
In order to do so, please follow the below steps within the Coriolis Web UI:
- From the Dashboard go to “About Coriolis” (check “Obtain license 1.)
- In the pop-up, click “Add license” and upload/paste the provided Coriolis license file
- After the license is pasted click on the bottom right “Add license”
